    Copyright Compliance

DAOES is not responsible for any violations of the copyright laws by its staff or students. A staff member should contact the Director or designee whenever the staff member is uncertain about whether using or copying material complies with DAOES' procedures or is permissible under the law, or wants assistance on when and how to obtain proper authorization. No staff member shall, without first obtaining the permission of the Director or designee, install or download any program on a DAOES'-owned computer. At no time shall it be necessary for a DAOES staff member to violate copyright laws in order to properly perform his or her duties.
